What about you Andre? Are you going to put something aside for yourself this year? Surely a UK based "demo" model would be good for business

Oh yes for 2011 I am having a Parker 650 with QSD 2.0 (170HP) and I am even thinking of bring it over by sea at the end of April but that will be subject of another thread

Thanks Andre

A timely re-start as yesterday we were talking to some people about getting a grant to help towards the boat, a fair portion of the work it will do is environmental monitoring and there is no governmental body here to do anything like that.

Maybe, though historically experts with no local knowledge tend to the be the preferred choice of Channel Islands governments

Yeah yeah, as webmaster of the owners association I will invite home to join and I will offer some advice. I could even lobby the manufacturer for help

Seriously though I have had massively supportive and positive feedback from all beta testers of my new site and none more so than Kris himself. NB my osprey discount offer was a joke. See the old thread aboutthe OOA for it's source! Cheers andy! :P

Will reply to the bloke later chewy
